21" mulching blades

Having seen many options on 21" mulching blades I am curious, what's your pick and what do you not like about others? After a week with a new Honda Microcut I've grown to appreciate the Ninja's even more. The Microcut leaves more stragglers, doesn't handle twigs/sticks as well and in leaves the Ninja won handly.

I have the Snapper Hi-Vac with the ninja and I'm not impressed. I'd like to try a gator and get a comparison.

I have two Snappers, one with a Quantum 6.5 and one with a Kaw FJ18V. The Honda is an HRC216 so the comparison seems fair enough. I compaired the cuts using new blades with factory edges on a variety of grasses and weeds cutting to 2". It seems there are some folks who don't like the Ninja cuts but I'd have to see their comparisons to understand their complaints.

It seems to be when I cut lower, I get a better cut. It leaves stragglers in thin-bladed grasses that are tall.

We can't PM until you have 10 posts.

Still interested though. Not trying to be condescending, but it is a 21" blade, right? I just like to be sure there's no confusion

i know why i am happy with mine! i go slow! my mower is a push with no drive, so if i see it not cutting right i walk slower! i seem to always have smooth nice lawns and i do cut at 3.5" which is the highest setting on the hi vac snapper.
